Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers which is employed to cache the output code of script apps. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and will accelerate such an Internet site up to 3 times. PHP websites are dynamic and every time a visitor opens some page, the script hooks up to a database in order to retrieve some content, then the code is parsed and compiled before it's shown to the site visitor. In case the output code doesn't change however, that's the case with sites which show identical content all of the time, these actions result in unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled code and delivers it each time visitors browse a site, so the database doesn't need to be accessed and the program code does not need to be parsed and compiled again and again, that consequently minimizes the website loading time. The module could be extremely useful for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, etc.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting
APC is available with each and every cloud hosting package that we offer and you could activate it with just a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you'd like to use it for your web apps. A couple of minutes later the framework will be working and you will experience the quicker loading speed of your database-driven Internet sites. Since we provide several versions of PHP which can also be selected through Hepsia, you'll even be able to to employ APC for scripts that require different versions of PHP inside the same account. Our next generation cloud Internet hosting platform is extremely adaptable, so in case you use a different web accelerator for any Internet site and it interferes with APC, you'll be able to activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a certain site only by using a php.ini file generated in the domain or subdomain folder.
